Let's talk about this beautiful lemon cotton lawn for a minute, because it's only gracing my body thanks to the kindness of another sewer. I saw this beautiful fabric on Handmade Jane's blog last year when she sewed up a Mortmain Dress. That dress instantaneously filled me with a bad case of fabric lust. The colors, the painterly quality of the print, the sheer size of those lemons. It Was Perfection! I quickly clicked on the link to Abakhan fabric with my credit card in hand. Well my friends it was then that I found out that Abakhan does not deliver to the US. NOOOOOOOO!!!!
Elena tweeted me, "I can order some and mail it to your house." SHUT THE FRONT DOOR! YES, YES, YES!!! So Elena awesomely enabled my fruit print fabric addiction and personally shipped 4 yards of lemon lawn to me. I am forever indebted to her because this fabric is the bomb.
EOS. I haven't been able to find anyone stocking true Siri poly/cotton lining like Gertie used to have in her online shop that one glorious summer. The lightweight rayon/cotton interface is the same weight and the hand is almost the same. It works great for underlining if you don't feel like shelling out $$ for cotton batiste.
In closing I'll leave you with some theoretical tall glass of lemon aid and a good petticoat twirl picture. Ahhh summer, you're the best.
